Melbourne / Sydney: Wednesday evening
Project5213 Week 28

"Bear is Evie's favourite soft toy. When we talk about who is in our immediate family he is always included - Mummy, Daddy, Evie and Bear Wilson. Whenever I go in to check on Evie of a night time Bear is always tucked under one arm.

For a while, just after Evie started daycare, she relied on Bear being there to comfort her more than usual. Bear went to the park, the supermarket and playgroup (and got left at playgroup... oops!) with her and even watched over her while she had a bath.

Apparently Evie likes a bit of an audience while she bathes. Both Bear and Knuffle Bunny on this occasion.
"

My crafting mojo seems to have disappeared along with my blogging mojo. I think it's because my crafting stuff hasn't been unpacked since the move so it takes me ages to find anything. I've just had enough energy to whip up some lambykins for the latest arrivals. They are pretty easy (and cuddly) to make, which is good because I wouldn't want any new babies to miss out on the traditional lamby.

Recently I've made lambykins for Julian, Remy and Oliver. Welcome new bubs!

I like the stripey fabric. It's lovely to find a gender neutral fabric.

Clare also sent me this lovely action shot of Julian and Elliot with their lambykins.

I know that officially in Australia, we're not allowed to complain about the rain. It's good for the farmers. It's great for bushfires. It's not great for mums of toddlers though. We had a playdate at a friend's house this morning. Evie must not have expended enough energy because she wasn't interested in napping this afternoon. I guess this signals the start of the end of the afternoon nap (Noooooooooo!).

Evie loves the rain because when it rains I let her wear her gumboots and carry her umbrella. She also loves jumping in muddy puddles (just like Peppa). I wouldn't mind an adult sized pair of her red gumboots. Evie is always dressed in clothing I secretly wish I could wear. (The boots and umbrella were gifts from Janet and Davina. Thanks ladies! I think they might also give Evie gifts they secretly want to wear.)

There's many a slip by Ken Unsworth. I like how the skeleton looks over Waverly Cemetery.

Just a teaser tonight. Andrew, Evie and I managed to squeeze in Sculpture by the Sea on Saturday on its last weekend. It was a bit hard to be inspired by the artworks as it was such a very hot day. Evie enjoyed the walk and looking at the artwork. I think she really enjoyed the ice block she got to eat at 10 in the morning (Mummy's fault. It was so hot! I needed something to cool me down.)

I'll leave you now with a few photos of Lucy Humphrey's Horizon. It was my favourite sculpture and definitely a crowd favourite. It's so photogenic! There are lots of beautiful photos of it on the internet. So hard to get a unique perspective of it. Here are my attempts.
